Graduate Studies Registration Information



New Student Registration

All graduate students must initially register in the term specified in their letter of acceptance. Any student not registering within one term of acceptance will be required to re-apply for admission. In exceptional circumstances and with prior approval from the Department, a student may defer registration for up to one term following acceptance into the Faculty of Graduate Studies. In the case of international students, admission may be deferred, with prior approval from the Department, for up to one year following acceptance.

Program Approval
All programs must be approved by the head of the major department or designate. Approval to take courses from departments outside the major department must be obtained from outside the department.

Registration Instructions
All Graduate Programs have specific registration instructions. Please check the current Registration Guide for information specific to your program of study and ensure you contact the appropriate person in your unit for registration instructions. Once your program is approved students should consult the department for registration instructions. Department contacts are listed by unit in the Graduate Studies section of the Registration Guide.

Fees
Please refer to the Fee Information page regarding fee assessment and payment.


Returning Student Registration

Re-Registration
Any student whose program of study extends over more than one year must re-register for September of each succeeding year of his/her program until a degree is obtained. Failure to re-register will result in the termination of the student's graduate status. A student who would like to be considered for continuation in a program that has been terminated must re-apply for admission. The re-registration requirement does not apply to Occasional students, or students on an Exceptional or Parental Leave of Absence.

Progress Report
The Progress Report for graduate students in thesis/practicum project programs must be submitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies prior to registration. Failure to submit this report will result in registration access being denied.

Registration Instructions
All Graduate Programs have specific registration instructions. Please check Aurora Student for information specific to your program of study and ensure you contact the appropriate person in your program for registration instructions.

Continuing Courses
Returning students are reminded to re-register for courses they have not completed (noted as CO on transcripts).

NOTE: Registration is not complete until fee payment or fee payment arrangements have been made with Revenue, Capital and General Accounting in writing prior to the fee payment deadline dates. Once your program is approved, students should follow departmental procedure to register.
